Eric Monkman is a young man who has captured the hearts of the British public.
A member of Wolfson College, Cambridge, this young Canadian from Oakville, Ontario is a member of the University Challenge team.
Recently he caused quite a stir when the popular, televised quiz show revealed Monkman’s idiosyncratic facial expressions, his fierce voice and aggressive style of firing out answers.
He wore the same outfit everyday, only changing it up by tucking his collar in or not. People noticed.
Monkman responded by saying he wants to save his mental focus for more important things.
He has been described as having a grin “like an emoji for a forced smile” and an oversized titanium jaw. He is noted for bellowing out his answers like a roaring sergeant major.
All these attributes of this man endear him to our Aspie hearts. How wonderful to see someone so perfectly Aspie-ish capture the hearts of millions.
I am not saying Monkman has Asperger’s Syndrome. I’m only saying if he did, he could be our poster boy.
